101  Bitcoin / Pools / Re: [Swepool.net][New server] Pay-per-share, LP, JSON-API, Autopay, Lowest PPS fee! on: May 27, 2011, 11:23:00 PM

Swepool pays you per share instead which gives you much more stable payouts since the payouts dont depend on if we solve a block or not. You always get your expected payout, no need for block solve or block maturity. You can see of it as most of the other pools put the risk/variance on you and swepool doesnt.

Thought slush used shares as well?

They all use some sort of share based system but it's generally a proportional payment and only when the pool solves a block.

Pay per share is ideal for the miner if you want reliable income.

Ok, so I point one of my GPU's at it which usually runs around 400M/sec but on swepool it averages about 360!  I think it's solving shares quicker than it's recieving them...

Also had a couple more time out errors again.

My ping to swepool.net is nearly 600ms!

Also, I worked out the 0.00018xxxx figure was on the old difficulty.  Deepbit has gone down to 0.000103xxxx.

At this stage I want to switch but the connectivity issues/reduced hash rate is a problem.

I've started up a CPU miner to test out your pool.

I got this error after a few minutes and it resumed after the 30 second retry:

[2011-05-28 08:38:06] HTTP request failed: Empty reply from server
[2011-05-28 08:38:06] json_rpc_call failed, retry after 30 seconds

After 1 share my balance was 0.00010577564409762 btc.  Shouldn't it be 0.00018841688243877 which is your per share payment?

I would like to objectively be able to figure out if it's more efficient / "cheaper" to be using you instead of deepbit/slush/BTCMiner.

I currently have no idea what all the 50 different share/participation models end up meaning in real world more or less output of BTC.

About the only "simple" comparison seemed to have been the % of fee, and even that has been obscured by a per block thingie. Or, something.

Bottom line - it would be great if there were a more transparent reason why one should mine here instead of there or there.

I'm not averse to switching pools, if it had a good reason.

Same goes for payout logic btw.

I'm pretty much in this boat too.  I've been mining on deepbit for a few days and getting really good results.  Given the need to pay off my investment I don't have time to go pointing my miners at other pools just to see if it's worth it.  Maybe I can do that in a couple of weeks when I have enough BTC.

Do you have any real world comparisons/results that will compel users to switch from other pools to yours?

i just found this out, my second video card will not overclock infact that S.O.B. will not even Default Clock

its Underclocking itself, and i cant stop it

i used ati trays, i used msi afterburner, its staying at 157  cpu mhz and 300 memory mhz

swap the cards around on the motherboard and see if that helps
106  Bitcoin / Mining / Re: Will someone Help me Real Quick? first mining rig on: May 27, 2011, 01:53:20 PM
i feel asleep last night

the problem i had last night was that the Computer would RESTART whlie Mining for 5 to 15 minutes

Use MSI Afterburner and keep an eye on the temps.  HWMonitor is good to monitor temps too.

What clock are the cards set at?

What temp are they running at?

Hey nice work these are cool Smiley
108  Bitcoin / Mining / Re: R tools for pooled mining on: May 27, 2011, 12:52:26 PM
Thanks for this!  Nice to have some equations in a usable format Smiley
109  Bitcoin / Mining / Re: Will someone Help me Real Quick? first mining rig on: May 27, 2011, 11:46:48 AM
i just removed the crossfire's

i just installed catalyst 11.5

for some FREAKING reason

my Clocking and Memory, will be normal 700 and 1200 whatever

then it will jump to 150 and 300 for no freaking reason

mine does this too when i'm not mining...no idea why

Do yourself a favour, download MSI Afterburner and use that to set the clock/fan settings.  Kill the CCC.exe process or your miner will crash often.

I'm interested in joining.  I have 2Gh/s atm and will have a total of 4Gh/s next week.

I've pointed 800MH/s at it.  Your hashrate estimate is way off!  Showing at 15MH/s atm...it is going up however.

It's a 30 minute average value, basically it takes the count of shares you submitted in the last 30minutes and works out your hash rate from that (1 Mhash/s roughly equals 1 share every 72 minutes ), so give it up to 30 minutes before the values are at all respective and even then it will be based on your miners luck and might vary by up to +/- 50 Mhash/s.

Ahh yes of course!  I'll report back later then Smiley

112  Bitcoin / Mining / Re: 5870 Users! Clock Speed, Memory, Voltage, SDK and CCC Version, Flags, etc. on: May 26, 2011, 11:58:52 AM
I'm running 4 x 990/610, stock voltage, fans 100%, Catalyst 11.5 SDK 2.4, poclbm -v -w128 and pushing 410-420MH/s
Temps around 60C on all cards (all are in separate PC's)

Whenever I try to go to 1000 or above the cards instantly lock up.

I'll be trialing linux tomorrow with SDK 2.1
113  Bitcoin / Mining / Re: Club3D 5870 OC Edition - best performance yet? on: May 25, 2011, 05:24:58 AM
Now I'm using Afterburner for all settings.

1000mhz GPU
610mhz memory
default voltage

Still pushing 420MH/sec @ 60C now Smiley
114  Bitcoin / Mining / Re: Club3D 5870 OC Edition - best performance yet? on: May 25, 2011, 04:53:09 AM
You use both tools together, GPU tool for voltages and afterburner to adjust fan speed.

Awesome thanks.  It just locked up on me trying to go over 1000 so I think I might just leave it at that Smiley

Definitely a great bang for buck card.  I thought this to be important considering the estimate difficulty rise of about 80% in 2 days!
115  Bitcoin / Mining / Re: Club3D 5870 OC Edition - best performance yet? on: May 25, 2011, 04:24:39 AM
So I tried the tool and could adjust the clocks fine but it immediately set the fan control back to auto and the temps jumped up.  I've set it back with AMD Overdrive and fans at 100%

Do you know of any fan control I could use?  The GPU clock tool doesn't appear to be able to handle the fans.
116  Bitcoin / Mining / Re: Club3D 5870 OC Edition - best performance yet? on: May 25, 2011, 04:14:59 AM
Yeah I'm expecting it to get higher but they haven't moved yet.  I'm running each in seperate boxes at the moment and am planning getting a few more tomorrow in a single box.


I'll give the AMD GPU Clock Tool for HD 5850/5780 a try and see what I can push out of it!
117  Bitcoin / Mining / Club3D 5870 OC Edition - best performance yet? on: May 25, 2011, 04:02:34 AM
Hi guys

I've just picked up 3 x Club3D 5870 Overclocked edition for $260 AUD each.  This is the config I have them running at without any tweaking of the miner:

OS: Windows 7
Driver: Catalyst 11.5
SDK: 2.4
GPU clock - 1000mhz
Mem clock - 900mhz
Fan control - 100%

These settings have been applied using the Catalyst Control Centre - AMD Overdrive

So now for the results!

420MH/sec with poclbm.exe -v -w128
Temp: 56C !!!! (this part just blows me away)

I'm about to start playing around with Phoenix and see if that gives me any better results!
118  Bitcoin / Mining / Re: [Help]poclbm.exe stopped working? on: May 23, 2011, 10:10:35 AM
You haven't given it a pool URL to talk to.....

My batch looks like this:

start poclbm.exe -d0 --host=deepbit.net --port=8332 --user=user --pass=pass
119  Bitcoin / Mining / Re: Auto Run Miners, Run Miners in Background/as Service? on: May 23, 2011, 08:53:51 AM
You can try my screensaver front-end with poclbm

That is very cool.  Nice work!
120  Bitcoin / Mining / Re: Profitability of Mining + Excel Workbook on: May 23, 2011, 06:19:18 AM
Ha, I did the same thing but with different assumptions, I even measured the actual Wattage being used on the machine with a kill-a-watt meter.  Here is what I came up with (tl;dr = 3.5 months to recoup hardware if the difficulty doesn't change).

Note: all of the hardware was extra gear I had and/or snagged for a bargain locally, usually used via Craigslist so my hardware cost is low vs. retail.

I could send the spreadsheet to anyone interested.



Yes please!

Me too please Smiley
